Viking Legend Vasa RI JE RATI

Born 8/18/2018

Vasa was the "yellow" dog in our first litter. He's a smaller standard male, currently 17 pounds, with quite a bit of the look and manner of his mother Bossa.

Vasa took Group 4 for puppies 4-6 months at the Puyallup dog show.

On March 23, 2019, Vasa had his first experience with Barn Hunt, and passed his instinct test.

Vasa passed the Introduction to Quarry earthdog test in June 2019 at the Cascade Dachshund Club test.

He earned his first earthdog title at the Cascade Dachshund Club trials in June 2021, with two qualifying performances in a row for his Junior Earthdog (JE) title.

Vasa earned his first two Rally Intermediate legs as virtual submissions (taped at Family Dog Training Center) in December 2020, and his Rally Intermediate title at the Cascade trial on 18 September 2021 under judge Sue Cox.

Vasa qualified in Beginner Novice twice at the Cascade Dachshund Club trial on 18 September 2021 under judge Sue Cox.
